MS Builders has a reputation for building quality villas at affordable prices. Builder Dave Schmitt has built neighbor-hoods in Sylvania, West Toledo and Bedford, Michigan that have a quite country feel, but are just minutes from all the conveniences you want. His latest development, Birch-wood Hollow, is no exception.

Located just a mile west of I-75 off Wales Road at the western edge of the Village of Northwood, it retains a country feel, with easy access to I-75, downtown Toledo, and Perrysburg.

Homes being built in Birchwood Hollow start at just $130,000, including lot. Best of all, they come with a 15-year real estate tax abatement, which will save you tens of thousands of dollars over the 15-year period.

The model at 8404 Birchwood Lane is clad in light cream-colored siding with a matching cultured stone front. The soldier coursing around the windows offers a glimpse of craftsmanship usually found In more expensive homes. While walking up to the covered front porch you will notice the front door has a sidelight, which lets light into the foyer while allowing residents to see out. Once inside, the dark, solid oak flooring in the foyer makes you feel right at home.

To the left of the foyer is the guest bedroom with plenty of light and a large closet. An adjacent full bathroom serves this bedroom, as well as any guests to the home. The bath has a raised vanity in white, topped with a white cultured marble top for a clean, elegant look.

The foyer opens to the large great room where a cathedral ceiling and plenty of windows give the room a dramatic flair. In the corner is a gas fireplace with a rich granite surround and raised hearth.

The master bedroom is off the great room toward the back of the house for maximum privacy. This room also features a deep tray ceiling and ceiling fan. A large walk in closet with plenty of shelving, and a private master bath area with walk in shower, complete the master suite in style. At the other end of the house is a large kitchen and eating area with a snack bar large enough for three bar stools and serving as a great work area. The countertops are covered in a granite-like high definition laminate complemented by the rich, cherry-finished birch cabinets. A generous pantry closet offers ample storage. The eating area looks out over the back patio and fully irrigated back yard area.

At the back of the kitchen are an extra-large walk in closet and the laundry area which leads to the two-car garage. Pull down stairs let you access the floored attic area, an ideal place to store seasonal items.

Birchwood Hollow is located at the western edge of the Village of Northwood, but is in the Rossford School system, rated Excellent with Distinction by the State of Ohio.
